    I am creating a single page MDI type application where the user can create tabs for each document they are working on.   

    If the tab names are too long or they select enough items to work on that the tabs no longer fit on the screen, I need a way to gracefully handle the overflow.    I do not want a second or third line to open up, rather, I would like to have an icon show up that will give them a drop down menu with the list of tabs off the screen. 

    Does anyone know how this could be implemented with kendoTabStrip?

    Hello Steven,

    I am afraid that what you would like to achieve is not currently supported by the TabStrip widget, but we will appreciate if you submit this as a feature request at our user voice page. In this way the other users would be able to evaluate and vote for this idea. We will monitor the community interest and if your suggestion turns out to be popular we will consider it for one of our future releases.

    Regards,

    Alexander, Thanks for responding. I am aware that it is currently not supported, but does it seem like something that can be accomplished externally to kendoTabStrip or would it be something that is fundamental to the control and wouldn't be an easy fix? I will look at user voice to see what others think about this feature. Thanks.

    I am facing the same issue.  Can you tell me if you found a work around for it.

    Alexander/Telerik: Any suggestions on a work around to support this?
